    Tammy, I was so glad to see your post on Wednesday and again today; I saw them as a step toward healing for you. For me in times of great loss the first couple of steps are the most difficult, and then the passage of time takes over to help heal. Your family’s love, including your dad’s, will help you all through the transition to a new part of life. Prayers and good thoughts continue for you and your mom.

    Thanks for posting about quitting sugar. I come from a family with a history of diabetes (father, and both grandfathers).

    Having just turned 50, I’m thinking deeply about changes going forward to further reduce health risks, and quitting sugar is one of them.

    To get there, I want to start limiting my intake to one sweet a day at the most. Mind you, I’m not a soda drinker, and my wife’s and my diets are already very non-mainstream, i.e. we avoid most processed foods. Also, like you guys we are car-free by choice, and have been for nearly a year (loving it by the way). Our weakness is desserts when eating out, or pastries in coffee shops.

    Your post about quitting sugar hit me at the right time, and it’s been on my mind since reading it yesterday.

    So I guess what I’m trying to say is thanks for the inspiration to take the next step.

    reading suggestion for quitting sugar: the primal blueprint by mark sisson and visit his blog http://www.marksdailyapple.com . i absolutely LOVE eating primal. it’s all about how we evolved to eat and the science/research that backs it is also based on evolution. just expect to feel YUKKY while your body adjusts from carb addiction to being geared towards fat (like it’s supposed to be). the best part about eating primal? BACON! yum. good luck!
